This course takes students on a trip to eight capital cities, at different moments in time: Renaissance Florence, Golden Age Madrid, Colonial Mexico City, Enlightenment and Romantic Paris, Existential and Revolutionary St. Petersburg, Roaring Berlin, Modernist Vienna, and bustling Buenos Aires. While exploring each place in a particular historical moment, we will also consider the relations between culture, power, and social life. How does the cultural life of a country intersect with the political activity of a capital? How do large cities shape our everyday experience, our aesthetic preferences, and our sense of history? Why do some cities become cultural capitals? Primary materials for this course will consist of literary, visual, sociological, and historical documents (in translation); authors we will read include Boccaccio, Lope de Vega, Sor Juana, Montesquieu, Baudelaire, Dostoyevsky, Irmgard Keun, Freud, and Borges. Note: To be eligible for WAYS credit, you must take the course for a minimum of 3 Units and a Letter Grade.

ILAC 226: Impersonality and Anonymity in Contemporary Latin American Culture

This course discusses a series of cultural and aesthetic interventions in Latin America -particularly within the realms of visual arts, literature, and cinema- that addresses a radical discussion of subjectivity, personal identity and "forms of living together" (BARTHES 2003). These interventions entail a deconstruction of personal identity and subjectivity, exploring figures of the impersonal and anonymous that insist in interrogating the intensity of a life irreducible to the notion of a self. Works by narrators like Teixeira Coelho (2006) or Diamela Eltit (2002), or installations by Rosângela Rennó (2008) or Gian Paolo Minelli (2007) -among many others- seem to have abandoned the concern with individuality and identity to explore figures of the impersonal out of which emerges a concern with collectivity and community. The course will cover literary works, installations and films by Chilean, Argentinean and Brazilian authors and artists. Course to be taught by Florencia Garramuño.

We will also read the book "Finding the game" by Gwendolyn Oxenham (the female of the couple) who will tell us their unique experience.
